cherry ripe bars

I’m not much of a Cherry Ripe fan myself. I’m pretty sure they were always the last chocolates to be snatched up from the box of Favorites in our family. But I couldn’t resist the challenge posed by, yet again, Dan Lepard. Ok he didn’t pose any challenge. But he presented me with this recipe and I just couldn’t turn it down.

I think they turned out pretty darn well. J LOVES them (the stash in the fridge is very quickly disappearing) and claims they are very similar to the original bars. They have a nice biscuit base and chunks of glacĂ© cherries throughout. I am not going to claim ‘not only do they taste much better than the original commercial version, they have way less additives’ because, well.. do you KNOW what goes into glacĂ© cherries? Yeah.. they’re not naturally that colour!

But don’t let that put you off!
